We used to have a rocket, the sort where you had to legally do a 10 second countdown before you hit the button, to let people know you were sending one up.

Now, hubby has a radio controlled car, though he had considered a helicopter himself but it's the problem of finding areas that are suitable and the conditions and such since it's windy most of the time here, which meant he'd probably get very little usage time. The heli's above look cool though :rockon:

No not yet, but 99% sure it will be the 9104 when we have the cash. I can get it for less than $70.00 counting shipping.

This kit.

Red is always the faster color ;)

Starting small. This is a "mini me" I order this pay day of the big one I'll be getting in a few months.

When I say mini me I mean mini me. It functions the same as the big one even as small it is. Just costs much less. Less than $40.00. I can fly this one in the house easy and will be for crappy days out side when I want to fly and can't use the big one. Plus it will get me back used to flying and save on replacing tons parts on the big one. lol

Ya, Mac had a Air Hog chopper I played with, but I also had RC's as a kid. This will be a nice refreasher before getting a big more pricey chopper posted earlier.

It can do a lot more than a Air Hog. lol :rockon:
